About me

I graduated in 2010 from the University of Lincoln with a BA Hons Graphic Design degree at a 2:1, and have been working in the industry ever since. I've worked as a freelance, agency, supplier and in house designer, so have gained a broad range of experience. My experience has been mostly POS and retail based, working on creative design from scamps through to print ready artwork, for clients such as Disney, Asda, Waitrose, Mars, Xerox, EA, B&Q, New Look and Wilko. In the last couple of years I've also worked closely with automated artwork programs and systems, from design and templates through to front end use and testing.

Other areas I've touched upon over the years include 3D cardboard engineering, social media support, car livery design, exhibition design and a small amount of web design and management, and video production.

My current role at The Delta Group involves taking briefs, turning them into ideas and/or artwork and eventually into print ready files, often including mock ups. I work very closely with clients, print production and suppliers, agencies and in house POS, promotions and studio teams, to enable me to do this. I manage my own time and workload, working to tight deadlines and meeting client expectations.
